Performance Brake Cooling System upgrade for your front brakes reduces peak operating temperatures for improved braking performance. Greatly reduces brake fade with stock brakes and lowers peak temperatures on big brake kits. This kit is recommended for track use.
Fits the following models with 16 or 17 inch wheels:
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertibles
Available as a Complete Kit, or as individual components.
The PBCS diverts high velocity air from under the lower control arms and directs the flow to the rotor. This track proven set-up greatly reduces peak operating temperatures for consistent and predictable braking performance throughout an event.
The PBCS for the MINI uses a design commonly found on Porsche and BMW track cars. Unlike other kits that require 'cutting' of the bumper and inner panels, this is a complete 'bolt-on' kit that requires NO modifications to your MINI. This is a track set-up due to reduced clearance under the inlet scoop. If the car is driven to the track on the street, we recommend you remove the inlet scoop to prevent possible damage from road debris - you simply remove a hose clamp and zip ties to remove the scoop.
This kit works great with stock brakes as well as all big brake kits.
This kit consists of a pair of custom high quality TIG welded black anodized backing plate, a pair of highly durable Polyethylene Intake scoops designed specifically for the MINI, 500°F Silicone ducting, and all hardware for a complete installation.
(Intake scoops may require slight modifications on some wheel sizes and offsets, and may limit full-lock on the steering wheel.)
Optional Debris Screen is available to keep debris from entering the cooling ducts.
Available as a Complete Kit, plus the Debris Screen as an option. Sold each - 2 required.
Individual components are also available - all items sold individually.
See installation instructions.
For a special tool to test the condition of your brake fluid, see G2NMB1000. This tool will SAVE YOU $$$ by indicating when you need to change the brake fluid. This will allow you to get the maximum use out of the brake fluid - no more changing fluid routinely as a 'precaution', change it only when you need to!!
